Did you know that all seminarians are required to have a spiritual director?
Do you know what a spiritual director does?
I certainly didn’t when Evan started his journey of formation. A couple of years ago, I wrote a post about the role a spiritual director plays in formation and how everyone might benefit from having one.
Back then I summed it up by saying:
A spiritual director is a guide to interior growth and renewal, not counselor or therapist. The discussions center on the relationship between the directee and God.
You might still wonder what the personal experience is like. (Which brings me to the point of today’s brief post.)
On a recent Busted Halo broadcast, Fr. Dave Dwyer talked with producer (Brett) about the experience of interacting with a spiritual director. If you’re interested, it’s well worth your time to give it a listen.
